Experience Workshop – Improving long-term digital preservation is the name of the second international workshop organised by the PREFORMA Consortium.

 

IMG_0051The event, which took place in Berlin on November 23, 2016, aimed at demonstrating the conformance checkers for file-formats developed in the project, involving memory institutions outside the PREFORMA consortium in testing, using and further developing the software, and sharing the experience gained by PREFORMA memory institutions working with developers under R&D service agreements.

 

IMG_0048Hosted at the Kulturforum in Berlin, the event featured keynote presentations by international experts in digital preservation on the importance of checking the conformance of the digital files against the standard specifications, use cases and experiments of conformance checking at memory institutions, live demonstrations of the software developed by the three suppliers (the veraPDF consortium, Easy Innova, MediaArea) and an informal networking event where the attendees could share experiences, meet the PREFORMA developers and learn more about the tools.
